i live on the Isle Of Lewis In the Outer Hebrdies of Scotland where Dxing can be very good given the locaction.I have only just come back the radio after been away from it for about 15 years or so I have only started on 11m band in June 2010 just in time to miss all the action hihi so far ive made so many new freinds i just couldnt keep up i started DXing with a Stalker st9fdx and Antron 99 loaned to me by Peter 108RE022 who really knows his stuff and gave me lots of advice since then the stalker has moved to my brother who has also got the bug now and really getting stuck in.My plans for this year are to build a new radio shack and move location to the other end of my house so i ve got a bit more space for a bigger mast .Oh well thats enough about me enjoy my Page and thank you for looking 73s.From my Home QTH i use the Yaseu FT757 GX and Antron 99 becuse its the only antenna i think will last in the strong winds we get here and 4 Element Yagi beam from Sirio that only gets used in the better weather
This is my Mobile Station handy for getting acces to the high spots on the hill tops around my QTH and the low spots on the many beaches round the island working conditions here are Magnum S9 and sirio 5000 Performer
This is my 4 Element Beam from Sirio not had much use from her yet only got it at the end of last summer it came with a small rotator and controbox and does the job nicely hopfully by this summer ill have a new shack with a higher mast thats right my location at the moment im just using a 20ft scaffoling tube on a swivel clamp to get it down a bit more smoothly
Nice to work you today from here in chilly Atlantic Canada. Your station sounded great despite the QSB and QRM. Great looking website by the way. Reminds me alot of where I am originally from: Newfoundland, Canada.
All the very best to you John. Hope you get a chance to check out my website at www.9at270.webs.com.
Good luck with the dx and hope we can hook up again another time.
Thanks John for the nice chat on 27.390LSB 6/10/11 great to have a three way with 2.AB.249 look forward to the next time. Working a Alinco DX 70th, 100w, Sirio SD27 1/2 wave centre fed dipole on the vertical, no power, BFR, bare foot radio!
